Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-700) Issue With backslash(\) and Forwardslash(/)
Date Wed, 09 May 2018 08:26:00 GMT


Sebb commented on CONFIGURATION-700:

If the property value represents a path name, in most cases you can use forward-slash instead
of back-slash and Java will handle it the same way. This avoids the problem.

Backslashes are also special to JIRA, so if you want to be precise about file contents I suggest
you create small sample files and attach them to the issue, rather than trying to use the
correct number of back-slashes so that JIRA displays correctly.

> Dear Team,
> I am using commons-configuration-1.10.jar for updating property file in java.
> I have achieve all my requirement(Preserve comment, White space) with this API.But stuck
at one point.It is not working as per my expectations with slash.Below is one example.
> I have below url in my properties file.
> *C\*
> Now it is getting change to below after modification
> *\/wsdl*
> Means it is removing the backslash and changing forwardslash to \/.I know it is escaping
character. But is there any way to prevent this. I cant not change any thing in property file.
I have to handle through code only. Because of only this issue I again moved to Java util
> Please check fix of this. Rest is excellent.
